    Pros

    hourly pay is awesome @$15 an hour. Decent environment

    Cons

    I haven't been able to pick up a shift in 6 weeks. Nothing shows on my "Moment" screen despite constant refreshing. Tried to get help from ERC...totally useless. Condescending at best from pretty much anyone I spoke with including my site manager. Obviously I'm doing something wrong, would be nice if someone...ANYONE acted like they gave a crap.

    Advice to Management

    Remote management is a joke. You have great shoppers who feel like they're not cared about. There are real people working and looking for direction. Skype and emails are ok if you like the non human connection. You know, Team building, moral and stuff. It may work for some but I'd say you'd get better results if you cared a little more. After all, these are the folks doing the labor end.

    Pros

    I personally like picking on a station and not having to worry about anyone looking over my shoulder as long as I make rare. Nice people very motivational. Some jobs are tougher than others. And i was able to get amnesty tech spot. As far as how to get a non critical role. Stay away from vto, be on time, little tot , keep your rate and quality up and talk to your AM. Make it your goal to get to know everyone. Get to know ams from other teams make friends with current amnesty techs and let them be your biggest promoters. But you can’t forget the opertunity amazon also gives all associates for schooling etc

    Cons

    If you go negative upt you risk losing your job . Job rotation isn’t always able to be done.

    Advice to Management

    more team building. And if they’re gonna give 30 minute lunches they should provide a way to obtain a hot lunch even if we still have to pay for it.

    Pros

    Very flexible, work from home leadership position. Lots of communication and ability to engage. Wonderful culture and can do attitudes.

    Cons

    Difficult to advance, more people that are eligible for advancement than there are open positions. Roadblocks to the next level are abundant. Once one is overcome a new one is identified. Creates bad morale - stagnant performance when movement is desired, and there is no place to go.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to motivate and develop. Identify other roles that may also be good fits for leaders that could help drive development and career advancement.

    Pros

    Four day work schedule, okay pay for flex and delivery service provider drivers.

    Cons

    Amazon's dictatorship like control over the job. You are outsourced and easily fired for anything. Again Amazon! Even-though you are not employed directly by Amazon, they have complete control of the job. You work at an Amazon hub, you wear Amazon uniforms, and by all means you are told what to do by Amazon. But! Amazon gets the added benefit of not actually having to employ you directly. The thing is though, Amazon still can easily fire you. Other cons? High turnover of drivers, using rental vans to deliver packages that can go flying once you hit the gas or brakes. The management of the delivery service provider will vary greatly depending on the company you actually work for. The hub I work at has three DSPs and flex drivers. Amazon will randomly change procedures or rules and in the process make the job worse than it was before.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe hire drivers directly.

    Pros

    I'm a mother of 3 boys so my schedule is kinda hectic. But Amazon allows a flexible work schedule so I can make sure I am always available for my children.
    Amazon is my home away from home. If I'm not "Home with my children", I'm "Home with Amazon". I love the fun and interactive ways to help people whether its helping them find the perfect dress for that special night out, or helping someone who doesn't know how to shop online place their first order. Every day is a learning experience and I LOVE that!

    Cons

    You must have patience and people skills.

    Advice to Management

    A smile will always shine through, even on the phone. If you can't tell their smiling, then clouds are in their way!
